Viktor "Isildur1" Blom to Take on 100 Full Tilt Players Heads-up for $1,000 Each

Ever wanted to test your skills in heads-up action against Full Tilt Professional Viktor “Isuldur1” Blom but don’t have the required bankroll to play at his customary nosebleed level?

Full Tilt Poker is giving 100 players that opportunity in a special Blom 100 Flip Freeroll promotion designed to allow even low-stakes Full Tilt players a chance to take on one of the finest heads-up players in the game and possibly win a $1,000 prize. Qualifying for the Blom 100 Flip Freeroll tournaments begins on Friday, October 25 and runs through Sunday, November 3.

You can earn Blom 100 Flip Freeroll tickets each day during the qualifying period in any one of four ways: 1) By depositing at least $20; 2) by winning a SitNGo tourney that fields at least six players; 3) by cashing in a Full Tilt multi-table tournament; 4) or by winning one of 50 tickets available in daily Twitter competitions.

Each player can earn up to four Blom 100 Flip Freeroll tickets each day. To win tickets via Twitter, players are advised to get the details by following @FullTiltPoker or search for the #Blom100 hashtag to enter.

Players who qualify will receive winning tickets by 13:00 ET on the following day. Those tickets can be used to register to any available daily Flip Freeroll tournaments hosted from October 26 through November 4. Winners of Flip Freerolls must play Blom on the day tickets are won.

Blom 100 Round 1 Flip Freeroll tournaments will run every five minutes beginning at 14:00 ET, while Round 2 will commence every five minutes starting at 14:30 ET. Each outright winner will go heads-up against “Isildur1” for $1,000 simultaneously with a chip stack of 1,500 under a Turbo No-Limit Hold’em format. The five Round 1 winners begin heads-up action against Blom at 15:00 ET and Round 2 champs will face the Swede at 15:30 ET.

Indications are that Blom is putting up the required $100,000 out of his own pocket in this exciting promotion. Considering the weekend he enjoyed, that will not be a problem. Blom won about $777,000 yesterday, with a good portion coming at the expense of fellow Full Tilt Professional Gus Hansen.

Flip Freeroll tournament winners who cannot play for whatever reason (fear?) or are beaten by Blom heads-up will have another opportunity for earning some bonus cash. A Blom 100 $5K Freeroll will take place on Sunday, November 10 at 14:00 ET. For more information on the Blom 100 promotion, click on promotions at the website.
